New DSS Commissioner Hopes To Streamline Agency
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has appointed a former Kansas state official to lead Connecticut’s Department of Social Services.
He announced Tuesday he is naming Roderick L. Bremby, the former cabinet secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, as his new DSS commissioner.
Malloy says Bremby’s experience in Kansas designing new systems for managing personnel, purchasing and documents will be helpful at DSS, which Malloy wants to modernize.
The 51-year-old Bremby served eight years in former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ administration as her secretary.
During that time he sat on a board that dealt with Medicaid issues.
His appointment awaits legislative confirmation.
